The Samsung Galaxy SIII is launching tomorrow and Samsung have unveiled an important last minute addition to the smartphone. The Korean company have unveiled Samsung Music Hub, which is a cross between iTunes and Spotify.
The Samsung Music Hub features both a free and subscription based service .
The free version of Samsung Music Hub is essentially the same as iTunes and enables Galaxy S3 owners to purchase music . The music you purchase is then synced to the Cloud and will automatically be available on your smartphone.
The premium mobile service is very similar to Spotify because it enables you to stream tracks from the whole library, as well as being able to listen to any of the included radio playlists. Just like Spotify you can make a number of songs available for offline listening for those times when you don't have an internet connection.
The premium mobile service, which costs £9.99 a month, also has a feature very similar to iTunes Match which enables you to import your music collection. The feature will identify your tracks and label them correctly and also enables you to listen to them wherever you are.
The Samsung Music Hub mobile service only enables you to use the application on one device, but they do offer a Premium service costing £12.99 a month which enables you to use the service on up to 4 supported Samsung devices, as well as on PC or Mac.
Samsung Music Hub will come pre-loaded on all Samsung Galaxy SIII's and 3G thinks its a great addition to the smartphone !
